The Rebel Carrots
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
I’ve finished harvesting the carrots, and found a few rebels in the bunch:
This one had two roots and they kept spiraling around each other down the entire length of the carrot. Does it remind you of any real life situations? I’m drawing a blank here…
This carrot decided, late in life, to send out roots in every direction! It kind of reminds me of The Car Guy. Once he was retired, he headed down all sorts of paths that he hadn’t had time to explore before!
Everything you ever wanted to know about carrots is at a website called World Carrot Museum. You really should visit this site. It is informative, well laid out, and a lot of fun… at least I think it is, but I’m knee deep in carrots right now.
Large, naked, raw carrots are acceptable as food only to those who live in hutches eagerly awaiting Easter.

What about you? What vegetable can you simply not fathom eating?
